Town Hall Dubbel. No further appellation, no fancy name, not for this one. I've had other dubbers from TH in the past, and they all had names. This is just "Town Hall Dubbel." And I had it earlier, just didn't think to write about it. Now, I will, and away we go..

Not too great in the looks department. Dark red, clear, no head at all.

Sweet malty aromatics, with a hit of spice. There's Special B malt in here, but richer and sweeter, with no temperance, keeping it cool and dry. Despite that, I rather like it.

Taste: big rich malty sweetness, with touches of molasses, dark rum, earth and spice. Dark fruit, figs, raisin, …getting slightly drier, even-tempered. Despite my wishy-washy captiluations, this is a classic dubbel, but not too rich, not too strong, not too anything. Not too sweet, not too dry. Plenty of flavor, lots of satisfaction, without going overboard in any direction. A Session dubbel, if we can make such a claim.

Plenty of carbonation, just a touch of bitterness, and much even-tempered sweetness. got to love that. Mmm. Nice, and …mmmm. Ah. Fit for a monk.

Pours a beige head. Color is a clear copper bronze.

Aroma: toasted malts and vanilla. Some spices with caramel and marshmallow. Nutty flavors. Pretty malty.

Taste: a lot more fruity esters here. Lots of bananas and cloves. Toasted malts and spice. Nuts with caramel and bready malts.

Mouthfeel: dry and smooth. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends dry with some booze.

Overall, an interesting dubbel. Very Americanized. It didn't taste like 8%. Pretty solid.
